"For technicians only" by default


Is it possible to have the "For technicians only" box checked by default instead of unchecked, when replying to a support ticket? This is to prevent that technicians will accidentally send sensitive information to the users.


Yes it is.

However, there's no built-in setting for this. You will have to add custom JavaScript in the admin panel, that will simply check this box on page load. 

Go to Administration > General Settings and click the Advanced CSS and JS link. Then add the following code to Custom JavaScript:

$(function() { $('#divNewComment #cbTechsOnly').prop('checked', true).trigger('change') });

This workaround, however, will not work when technicians add replies vie emails. To achieve this, add "#tech#" mask to you email template subject. This way, when people receive updates from the helpdesk app, they will also be sending this "#tech#" string back, when replying to helpdesk emails. And our email-API will mark their replies as "for techs only".
